Shooting a 65 and a 70 just two months shy of his 60th birthday at a major tournament makes a geezer want to grab his clubs, racquet, baseball bat, hockey stick - whatever - and head to the nearest golf course, tennis court, baseball diamond or rink.
Yes, I realize Watson could blow up in the final two rounds, but it's cool seeing a legend close in age to many of us, ahem, 'experienced' citizens post scores like those against a field that includes the greatest golfer of all-time (Tiger Woods) in the prime of his career.
I thought that was rather magnanimous of quarterback Brett Favre to tell the Minnesota Vikings that he'll let them know by July 30 whether he's going to come out of retirement. I was worried there that he might wait till the eve of the regular-season opener.
I was happy to hear that "The Express'' won an ESPY for best sports movie of the year. I know a lot of people grumbled because the movie took some historical license, but I thought the film was extremely well done. The bottom line is that, unless you lacked a heart, you walked out of the theater after that movie realizing what a remarkable player and person Ernie Davis was.
Congratulations to Don McPherson, who will be enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame tomorrow. I know this sounds like homerism coming from a Syracuse alum, but I still can't get over how the former Orange quarterback was screwed out of the Heisman Trophy after a fabulous senior year that saw him earn first-team All-America honors and the Johnny Unitas Award as the nation's top QB while leading the 'Cuse to a 10-0-1 record and a No. 4 ranking. There's no way Tim Brown from Notre Dame should have beaten him out for that honor in 1987.
Students of college football history recall a similar injustice when Jim Brown was edged by another Notre Dame player - Paul Hornung - for the award in 1956. Brown was a first-team All-American do-it-all running back who led his team to the Cotton Bowl. Hornung, meanwhile, quarterbacked an Irish team that went 2-7. In retrospect, it was pretty obvious that racism played a role in Brown's snubbing.
I don't know which repulses me more - the drug trafficking that landed former Bills running back Travis Henry in prison for three years or the fact he fathered nine children with nine women.
